two posts today.6 picitures

one morning Goeser and I were sitting by the bay window just enjoying the cool breeze and the company of the had been days sence we saw it.and I was sharing some kind words with him as he let me take the pictures to share on the you all could see what a handsome boy he is.and what a kind guy he is look at that face.well all at once we heard this wierd sound out side the window.I stood up and looked out the side window,nothing,then out the other window,nothing.then I walked over to the french doors.and there as proud as punch stood this lovely visitor.he just stood and looked at me as if to say hey I want to get my picture I took some of him.he just walked slowly away to the orcherd and he was gone.if you go down to the post below you will see what happened before he got to the orcherd.isnt he a lovely bird?

I couldnt believe he was so close and not at all afraid.the colors are out of this world.and he was a plump bird.I hate to say it but it made me remember grannys best thankgiving meal,maybe that is why he walked off alittle faster.maybe he saw me lick my chop,s.hee hee.granny made pheasent chicken and wild duck baked together.once long ago.I thimk of it now and then.

he is a nice bird,and no I didnt shut him and eat him.but he would have made some good eating.sorry but I was raised eating wild life now and then.deer,duck,squirrels,geese,turkey,pegion,rabbit,fish.we lived off the bounty of the land and raised our own food for a long time.
this will be short today cause I seem to have lost some readers.hope you who do read enjoy the pictures and the trip.
have a great day every one.God bless you.
remember to check out the other three pictures below.

I probably won't be posting too much for the rest of this weekend,
the kids went to Florida (Lori's sister had a baby) and Envy had to go the emergency room - she has pneumonia - so starting tomorrow I will be seeing after her for a while each day while Lori works. Jk was sick before they left. Mom is sick too. My left eye has been swollen and irritated all week with/chills and fever. I think the flu is going around. But I got a pneumonia shot last year, they make your arm hurt but are good for 5 yrs, and I got a flu shot a few weeks ago - might be what made me sick. But everybody should get protected and take care, especially with the weather so wacky.

Now to your post - Duck is my favorite wild bird, I cooked one last year for Christmas. I always stuff it with dressing and apples and oranges. If you have any good recipes for wild bird please pass them - the holidays are almost here!

Hi Leann,

Goesner is adorable. What a cute face. And, wow, a beautiful pheasant. My Grandpa used to hunt pheasant, and Grandma cooked it. It was delicious. But haven't eaten pheasant since then. We don't have them around here. We do have lots of wild turkeys though. In Hungary, we always had roast goose for Christmas. No one ate turkey. Here, turkey it is wild or tame.

I enjoyed your latest entry and pictures. Have a blessed weekend.
